Two years before the opening of St Bernadette’s, Bishop Flynn had said (at the opening of the church of Our Lady of the Assumption): ‘We need churches…In Blackpool alone I need to provide two or three more churches as soon as possible. I have opened five temporary churches…in the last two or three years. I want others through the length and breadth of this large diocese’.
